What is PEMF Therapy?

What is PEMF Therapy by Shealy-Sorin Wellness

Dr. Norman Shealy, MD, PhD, and Dr. Sergey Sorin, MD, talk about how PEMF therapy works and who can benefit from it. P.S. If you enjoy videos more than reading, scroll to the bottom and watch our video on What is PEMF therapy!

Many people have never heard of PEMF therapy, an innovative treatment with numerous benefits and proven clinical success. When doctors use it correctly, PEMF therapy can help ease pain, speed up the healing of bone fractures, improve internal organ function, and boost overall health and wellness. 

How Does PEMF Therapy Work?

In a nutshell, pulsed electromagnetic field therapy uses low-level electromagnetic pulses to reinforce the natural magnetic field in all cells of your body. The PEMF stimulates the cell to allow nutrients to properly flow into the cell and waste to be properly expelled from the cell. This allows the cells to function more optimally than without the PEMF stimulation. Check out our explanation of what is a PEMF machine.

This method can stimulate biochemical pathways that promote healing and regeneration in the entire body.

What Are The Benefits of PEMF Therapy?

To function optimally, healthy cell membranes need to have a balance between negative and positive magnetic charges. A correct magnetic balance enables normal ion exchange and the intracellular transfer of vital elements like potassium, calcium & other nutrients. It also allows the cells to properly expel waste. 

Cell membranes can experience disturbances in their electromagnetic fields for a variety of reasons. When cells’ voltage drops, ion exchange becomes impaired, which can lead to electrolyte imbalance and a host of symptoms like fatigue, inflammation, chronic pain & more. We call this a state of not optimally functioning. 

The PEMF technology can boost the electromagnetic charges by reinforcing electromagnetic charges in the cells and thus help the body’s natural healing processes. PEMF stimulation may assuage cellular dysfunction, stimulate neuronal repair, and improve blood flow.

We have extensively studied and clinically proven our specific range of frequency that our PEMF therapy uses. Pulsed electromagnetic frequency is measured in hertz. 

Additionally, the benefits of PEMF include:

  •  Increased Energy
  • Faster recovery times from injuries & strains
  • Reduced pain & inflammation
  • Improved athletic performance
  • Better blood circulation
  • Nerve & tissue regeneration

Who Is PEMF Therapy For?

Below are just a few examples of who can benefit from PEMF therapy.

Anyone looking for Holistic Anti-Aging & better health as you age

PEMF Therapy promotes cellular function. It allows your cells to reproduce easier & work more efficiently. Who would NOT want this in their day to day life? 

That is why we say PEMF therapy is for anyone and everyone!

Severe and Chronic Pain

Double-blind, randomized controlled trial studies have shown a clinically meaningful, significant reduction in severe pain intensity in the PEMF group compared to the placebo group.

In simpler words, PEMF can contribute to effective pain management. PEMF therapy slows the activity of pain and inflammatory mediators in the body. Thanks to stimulation by electromagnetic waves, pain decreases in a range of conditions, including knee osteoarthritis, back pain, neuropathic pain and others.

In many cases, patients suffering from chronic pain have unsuccessfully tried every type of conventional treatment before turning to alternative therapy. PEMF provides a gentle, effective pain relief solution while reducing the need for harmful drugs.

PEMF should no longer be considered just an alternative therapy, rather as a go-to main solution to chronic pain!

Diabetic Peripheral Neuropathy

Diabetic neuropathy is one of the most common complications of diabetes. The PEMF technology can help reduce diabetic neuropathic pain through its positive effect on damaged cells. The electrical stimulation increases blood flow, helps mitigate cellular dysfunction, and promotes normal cell interaction. As a result, faster tissue healing occurs, along with pain relief.

Bone Fusion

Anterior cervical fusion treated with pulsed electromagnetic fields was significantly quicker and more effective in the PEMF group compared to control groups.

Similarly, bone fracture patients treated with pulsed magnetic field therapy showed significant improvement in bone fusion speed.

Anxiety & Depression

PEMF has been shown in studies to alleviate anxiety & depression. We have experienced the same in our own clinic.


Athletes are always looking for an edge to grow stronger & faster than their competition. What better way than supercharging your cells? Many star athletes already use PEMF to recover faster, train longer and perform better.

Where Can You Have PEMF Therapy?

PEMF therapy now forms part of the treatment range in many clinical settings, including physical therapy clinics, sports medicine centers, chiropractic offices, and massage therapy clinics. Many people even purchase a PEMF machine to use for self-healing in a home setting.

PEMF therapy is non-invasive, highly safe, and has no known side effects. Stimulation devices that use the PEMF technology received FDA approval in 2007.

Please note that there are contraindications to PEMF exposure in certain groups, namely pregnant women and patients with implanted electrical devices like pacemakers or insulin pumps. PEMF may also be unsafe in patients with organ transplants.


What Are the Best PEMF Therapy Devices?

With so many PEMF devices now on the market, it is important to research every model’s properties before deciding on a purchase. We highly recommend purchasing a device from a reliable resource with professional clinical training and deep knowledge of the pulsed electromagnetic field stimulation technology.

The Shealy-Sorin Gamma PEMF® device that we developed is a tried-and-true holistic health product, one of the best priced units in the industry, a device you can use 24 hour a day 7 days a week to promote optimal cellular function, and the ONLY device that can put the brain into the GAMMA state.
